And then my supposed husband is killed.
I should be sad, but all I feel is anger. My husband is a lying, cheating bastard. And if that isn’t bad enough, I’m now the prime suspect for his murder.
Only his brother believes I’m innocent, and in his support, I find relief. However, I will find the real killer and bring him to justice … before he tries to end my life too.

‘Love is just a word thrown around to make us look good, but underneath the surface, it rots.’

Killer is the prequel to Stalker which I am now desperate to read. I have to admit to having mixed feelings about Killer. I loved the dark intensity and the writing was enticing, however I just couldn’t get a handle on it at times. Saying that though – I couldn’t put it down – it was tauntingly well written and I had to know where this story was going.

‘What can I say? I’m the scum of the earth, the disgusting vile that creeps in the corners to jump you at night…and I don’t for a second regret being like this.’

Killer was definitely compulsive reading where one minute I was loving the intriguing dramatic thrill of it only to suddenly feel confused as if I was missing what this story was trying to be and achieve. You know that feeling when something is so twisted full of double crossing but everything just ends up feeling a bit of a muddled tangle with a sudden information overload?!

As it was novella sized and it went from a past/present development to suddenly hitting you across the head with one teasing revelation after the next I didn’t get that important connection with the characters hence I didn’t feel an emotional investment except for dislike until a huge sudden shock when twists unravelled and the story took hold. I guess in some ways it felt like two different reading experiences tied together by a bloody thread.

‘Death has made his entry. It’s done.’

Saying that though, I enjoyed the mystery, the drama, passion and the fucked up arrogant killer, Phoenix. I couldn’t really get a hold on Vanessa at all but maybe that’s the point and Stalker will have the answers and soft emotion Killer was missing.

This story is definitely not rainbows and unicorns; I am none the wiser but this is why I will be picking up Stalker as soon as I finish writing this review because I have a burning urge to find out what the hell is going on…and so on that note I’m off to find the answers….

‘Tonight’s the perfect night to kill. I can feel it in my veins; that undeniable urge that flows through me on nights like these. Exciting like drugs; the murderous kind.’
